UHD Welcomes President Loren J. Blanchard

UHD President Loren J. Blanchard

This week, the University welcomes President Loren J. Blanchard to the Gator Family. A veteran administrator and educator, President Blanchard brings significant experience to the institution, as well as a passion for higher education. He also arrives with a familiarity and fondness for Houston and the surrounding region.

UHD students, faculty and staff can meet President Blanchard virtually during a special Welcome Reception on March 31. Likewise, the community can join him and other UHD and UH System leaders on March 24 during the virtual UHD Day at the Capitol.

Until then, Gators can learn more about President Blanchard in this latest UHD Magazine article and extend greetings to him on social media. Just look for special welcome posts across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Linkedin this week and share well-wishes in the comments sections.
